Trisetella triaristella grows in Panama and northern South America above 2000 feet. I is similar to Masdevallia except that it needs much less light. The genus Trisetella contains 20 species growing in a range from Mexico to Brazil. These are successively blooming miniatures separated from Masdevallia.
